Does Kezar in any way sound better than 13 Aug? I dunno as I have not listened to either in at least 25 yrs...seriously.

But I would have said hands down that Aug beat Mar by a mile at the time...at least in terms of "precison" not necessarily "soul" or what have you...

They both had the BfA sound and both are played nicely. Since I like this period the others have their own charms, like 9-28 with Truckin'-> The Eleven Jam-> Drums -> Stronger Than Dirt > etc.

The Bob Fried Memorial Boogie, gd1975-06-17, has its own mix and tone. Too bad for me there are more shows in this period. Just a flash: the last time I saw a picture of Clive Davis he was pushing a wasted Whitney.

I loved OFTV when it first came out. Soon after, a friend loaned me a tape of what was probably an FM sdb or maybe even an excellent aud of that show. I was immediately blown away at how Jerry's solo on Big River sounded so steaming hot and off the chain. It made OFTV sound like a different album, this aud tape made them sound possessed. Any one else experienced this too?

On a more anal note, on OFTV they cut out of Bill Graham's intro him talking about winning some coin flip before the show. Strange...
